Religious Education Program for Grades 9 & 10: Confirmation

As the Sacrament that completes our Baptism, Confirmation and the associated catechetical program encourages faith development and maturation through study, service, and prayer. The two-year program challenges our teenagers to deepen their faith and embrace the mission of service to others in need. Adult mentors and volunteers offer meaningful support and catechesis to promote the religious development of our young adults.

St. John’s Confirmation Program is designed as a two-year commitment which begins in the fall of Grade 9 and is usually completed by the spring of Grade 10. (Individuals enrolled in a Catholic school may be exempt from attending the first year.)  The program includes Religious Education classes, Friends for Good gatherings, community service, and an annual retreat.  Please see the Confirmation Details and Expectations page for specific information.

An informational meeting for Grade 10 Confirmation parents will be held on Sunday, October 22 at 6:00pm in Philbin Hall.  Please click on the Confirmation Parent Meeting Agenda  under DOWNLOADS for specific information.
